GAR­DEN TASKS

Hawke's Bay Today - - Gardening -

Use a wa­ter­ing can

Re­quest a metal wa­ter­ing can as an early gift. It’s a pleas­ant way to wa­ter and less waste­ful than a sprin­kler. Plus it looks at­trac­tive wher­ever you leave it in the gar­den.

Make a scare­crow

Check out the in­ter­net for in­struc­tions on how to make a scare­crow and make one with your kids or grand­kids.

Feed your veges

Toma­toes, pep­pers and cour­gettes will ap­pre­ci­ate a weekly feed of liq­uid tomato food or a flower and fruit fer­tiliser.

Clean up fur­ni­ture

Give out­door fur­ni­ture a once-over. Make sure all your canvas chairs are se­cure, wipe off any bird drop­pings, give ta­bles a wipe and clean your um­brel­las.
